The MFC-J5320DW is a business-ready, compact inkjet packed full of smart features. This wired and wireless network-ready all-in-one offers ultra-efficient A4 print, copy, scan and fax at class-leading speeds, with the bonus of A3 print capability.

Designed with ease-of-use in mind, connecting devices and accessing apps is effortless, while navigation is made simple with a 6.8cm colour LCD touchscreen. Without the need for a PC, print and scan to and from the cloud for easily shareable, securely stored digitised documents.

Despite its compact size the MFC-J5320DW delivers impressive print speeds of 22/20ipm (mono/colour) and a large 250 sheet paper capacity. Efficiency is guaranteed with fewer trips to the printer to refill the paper tray needed between jobs, and the 35 sheet automatic document feeder means that scan jobs can be left to complete on their own.

Efficiency doesn’t stop with the Business Smart’s time saving features, the entire range offers the lowest cost of ownership in its class, with optional high-yield inks and individual ink cartridges that mean you only need to replace the empty ones. And if you’re a business with an eye on the environment, the automatic 2-sided print can reduce unnecessary waste by up to 75%, while the smart scanning feature skips blank pages, capturing only the information that matters.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing We purchased an MFC - J5320DW in May 2016 and rushed back to the office gleefully excited that we had a new "toy" - no more wires or network issues, simple and quick printing and scanning awaited us! And we were right - for the first week. Then we had no end of troubles. At first, the printer kept freezing, we had to turn it off a the wall to get it to do anything. Then it printed blank pages and we had to clean the nozzles countless times to comply with Customer Services before they would "escalate" our complaint. Then CS gave us new drivers to download because, silly us, we had just dowloaded the Mac drivers that were on their website and followed their instructions from their website, aren't we just the biggest silly billies!!! Then, miraculously things started to look up. The printer printed, albeit it is very slow to receive the data, process it and then print so if you have lots of different documents to print, prepare to be around a while! We were jubilant, we nearly reached for the champagne but, we were premature. Sadly, another nine months later, the same things kept occurring. I reinstalled the printer, I dowloaded the drivers again, I cleaned the nozzles again- nothing worked - in fact, things got worse and the photocopy featured a black line down the side of the page! After hours on the phone to Customer services, they sent me a replacement machine. Hooray, Brother is in favour again, where's the champagne? Again, premature. After lovingly installing our new baby, we enjoyed a blissfully ignorant week whist the printer elves were rubbing their hands in glee having foiled us yet again! Alas, the new printer acted the same way as the old printer! Again, hours on the phone to customer services when I happen across a wonderful man who told me that I had to install the printer via the IP address and that Air printing was not a very good feature to use so this was really the only way. Now, after three days, things seem to be working again - fingers crossed but we won't be popping any corks any time soon just in case!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Buy We replaced an HP Photosmart with this machine on the recommendation of our local Computer shop. Good price and does everything we want it to, for general printing and photos. The inks are a lot cheaper than HP as well. The only small hitch was that we had to update our Mac, but Apple were their usual efficient and helpful selves, and dealt with it really easily. Everything works wel,l and it is so easy to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I've recently switched from an HP product to this printer. Set up is very intuitive, print quality is excellent and ink optimisation better then I found on the HP product. Scanning is on par with most devices in this price range. I experience some problems when I upgraded to Window's 10. It didn't t recognise the printer and I had to restore windows 7. This however was not a fault of the printer but rather the upgrade suite as I couldn't even print to PDF's. So I'm delighted with the printer and would recommend it to anyone looking for an printer/scanned that offers above average performance with reasonable running costs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still exploring this printer's potential For its main functions - regular printing of documents - the printer is fast, and the results are of excellent quality. I haven't yet tried to print A3 sheets, and I have not as yet been able to sort out the scanning function with my OSX10.10 iMac - but I will persevere after a few false starts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printer Does the job and more - good size especially as it copes with A3 as well. Have had brother printer for years, and wouldn't think of having a different make, No problems, just does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great home-office all rounder I previously had an HP Officejet machine in the office which was fine, but heavy on expensive ink and with flaky WIFI. Having also had a smaller brother printer that has given four years of sterling service, I thought I would replace the HP with this little gem when eventually its print heads failed. So far I have been delighted , with easy set up, great print quality and top notch scanning software I'm as pleased as punch - and all at a very good price.
